A care community for adolescents and young adults
When you’re a teen or young adult with cancer, you can feel isolated from people your age. After all, your life is really different from the lives of your friends and peers. However, you’re not alone. Approximately 70,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 39 are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. each year. Adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer is a medical specialty focusing specifically on treating cancer and blood disorders in people your age.
